Michele Bachmann: Same-Sex couples with kids are not a family

The above video speaks for itself.

Ms. Michael Bachmann’s stand on LGBT people can be categorized as follows

1. A same-sex couple with kids is not a family.

2. Anyone who doesn’t share the same views as her’s, would never get a job in her cabinet.

3. Same sex attraction is part of Satan. (BUT SHE IS NOT JUDGING.)

The way she keeps repeating that one line, “I am running for the presidency of the United States” reminds me of a talking parrot who have been taught just that one line. The way she stutters and stumbles everytime she is challenged on her views also reminds me of a stubborn child who has done something terribly wrong but doesn’t want to back down and hopes saying something over and over would somehow make her wrong right.

She ascribes honour and dignity to everyone. So calling someone “Part of Satan” is really very honourable.

She has also stated that she would be reinstating DADT if she becomes president.

Who is her adviser? Who tells her what to say when she is being interviewed? Does he/she even realise how utterly stupid and juvenile it sounds when everytime she gets stumped, she says the samething like a robot?

Except FOX, no other media outlet looks kindly  to her stance on LGBT issues and as time draws near to the actual election, she is going to be ripped apart if she keeps giving interviews like this.

DADT repeal poses another “problem” for Christians in military

Chaplains in military bases claim that after DADT is put to rest, they would not be able to follow religion as they want to. They would be forced to not talk about homosexuality as an abomination as the Bible “clearly says” because now there would be openly LGBT people attending the sermons.

It has started to look to me that the entire Bible is about gays and lesbians. There is no other topics that have been discussed there. So if the main topic of Bible which apparently is “Hate, kill, torture,demonize,oppress,suppress,ridicule gays” cannot be discussed while praying then its like stifling the voices of honourable christians. Its taking away law abiding, patriotic christian americans’ right to follow their religion.

Is that really how it is? In a half hour or 1 hour sermon, the chaplains will HAVE to talk about homosexuality and its negative effect on mankind or else its not praying at all. That’s really sad. I can’t help but feel sorry for this Christians.

Senate approves defense bill sans anti-gay amendments

http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2011/06/senate-panel-approves-defense-spending-bill-without-anti-gay-amendments/

Of late, I have been kind of losing hope and getting disheartened and depressed from all the force with which the anti-gay organisations, politicians, personalities have been trying to kill all our dreams.

But tonight, just before retiring for the night, this piece of news, brought my faith back on right over wrong. Not only the anti-gay amendments weren’t included, Article 125 has been repealed too, which criminalized sodomy even among consensual adults, gay or straight.

If only these angry, hate filled people knew, that it doesn’t take much to make us happy. All we want is what every living human being wants. Its very basic, very simple, to a point where it  almost seems trivial and unimportant. To be respected, accepted, included in the big picture, to be able to be a part of the human family, with the same rights and responsibilities.

I really felt hopeless, when even after repealing DADT, few politicians still tried everything in their power to delay it and if they could get their way, over turn it, and throw us back in the abyss  where we thought we had finally crawled out of.

But today, it looks like “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is finally going to rest in peace in the pages of history. I really wish, the next generation would never ask and we don’t have to tell them about this shameful law.

But I guess, DADT is gone so they will ask and we will tell.

Right Wings reaction to DADT

I was waiting for the Right Wingers‘ reaction to the repeal of DADT yesterday. And they didn’t disappoint me. Their reaction was exactly how I expected them to be.

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/reaction-dadt-vote-few-proud-sexually-twisted

For detailed information, check the above link.

According to Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association, the new Marine motto should now be,” The Few, The Proud and the Sexually twisted.” He went on to say by allowing gays and lesbians to openly serve in the militery would leave it “feminized and neutered beyond repair.”

Peter LaBarbara, president of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality lashed at Sen. Lieberman and called him an embarrassment to all Orthodox Jews around the world.

How illiterate and uneducated can one be? Illiteracy and being religious orthodox are the ‘the cause and the effect.’ Once one starts to educate themselves, it broadens their minds, and they come out of the orthodox stringent mentally. ‘President of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality….homosexuality is so important to him, that he made it his life’s mission to find the truth about it. Why is he so fascinated with homosexuality. How come gays don’t have organizations like Truth About Heterosexuality?

Because we don’t think about the things that is not normal to us. And we don’t make it the most important aspect of our lives. I find straight people weird, straight sex abnormal. So I don’t dwell on it. Try not to think about it.

Next in line is Gordon Klingenschmitt

After ranting about the usual God and Jesus Our Lord and homosexuality is an abomination in the eye of God..etc. etc here is an excerpt from the last part of his statement where he would be calling on his “125,000 patriot pastors across America, to whom I have, and shall again fax free voter guides before the November 2012 election, to mobilize Church voters to throw out these 25 pro-homosexual Senators up for re-election in 2 years:”

In 2 years… I felt like laughing my guts out. Who has seen 2 years? Its a long time. He might be even dead by then for all we know.

Talk about the perfect mix of religion and politics. The part which these people don’t get is, if they throw these 25 Senators out, there will be other 25 Senators who will come up and would be pro LGBT rights. How many times, how many Senators will they throw out?

Get this very loud and clear..WE ARE HERE TO STAY. WE ARE GOING NOWHERE. THE SOONER YOU GUYS DEAL WITH IT, THE BETTER.

DADT repealed

In a historic 65-31 votes at the Senate, the 17 years old DADT has been repealed.

The bigots fought as much as they could to stop it. They lied, talked rubbish, lost track and started all over again. Their hammering was relentless. Their hammering just forged us into being stronger and more determined.

Senator John McCain made his plea and talked about limbless marines. I have still no idea how that was relevant to the repeal of DADT. He mumbled and grumbled and went on and on. But the end result is here for all to see.

Senator Reid, a personal THANK YOU for all that you have done, and to all the other Senators who voted ‘AYE’ today.

I was overwhelmed with joy. I cried. I am not even an american. I don’t live in america.

But those LGBT men and women in uniform, they are one of us. Thats why it was a personal victory. A victory that was long over due.

When I started watching live streaming of the senate voting today, I had no idea I would be so emotional. Looks like we gays have more compassion than our straight counterparts.

Now starts an era of ASK and TELL and be proud for what you are.

And a personal THANK YOU is in order for President Barack Obama for seeing this through.

America you just reclaimed a part of your former glory. Well done.

Merry Christmas everyone and a VERY HAPPY and GAY NEW YEAR.

DADT repeal failed

Its already old news that DADT repeal failed at the senate by 57-40. Harry Reid screwed it up big time.

How justifiable is it? So you get majority vote but still for some stupid reason there is a predetermined number of votes you need to get and you don’t get it, result,  the entire thing is struck down? I mean, seriously. Its a sweeping majority. Why 60?

It might look pretty lame and ignorant to most political junkies, me asking this. But to my defense, I do not follow politics. And after today it reinforced the fact that I have not missed much by not following politics.

Senators voted ‘maybe’. How could they. If you are so indecisive then you are not fit to be senators. In a voting of ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ you came up with a ‘Maybe’. It seems like these senators are playing with thousands of people’s emotions and sentiments. “Lets vote ‘Maybe’ and then sit back and watch the fun.” Thats pathetic.

At times I think, if we change our view point, maybe DADT won’t hurt that bad.

At this current situation, LGBT people cannot serve in the military openly. So what happens if all the LGBT people just stop enrolling? The entire US Military would be of straight guys and girls. At a time when the nation is at war with two countries, let all the straight people go and fight and kill themselves. All the gays, can safely stay cuddled up at home and watch reruns of Queer As Folk.

In other words, the US Government and Military wants the straights to fight for us and make our lives easy and secure. So that we can sleep in peace at night. Maybe thats a good thing. Its time they work for us.

Now thats comforting.
